Dr. Joel S. Burnett, Director of Institute for Biblical and Related Languages and Professor of Religion, has the leading article in the November/December 2016 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. The article highlights Burnett’s work in the religion and history of ancient Israel’s neighbors east of the Jordan: the Ammonites, Moabites, and Edomites. Like the Israelites, each of these peoples had its own Iron Age kingdom (ca. 1200-550 BC) and worshiped its own god. In this richly illustrated discussion, Burnett presents some of the most recent and amazing archaeological discoveries from Jordan relating to these kingdoms.
